Notes

All track cuts are on sector boundaries.

Fade-in/fade-outs were added as needed.

The reel flips in "Loser" and "Truckin'" and a glitch in
"Casey Jones" were smoothed out.

All editing was done with DART Pro 98.

I don't know if your to stoned,stupid,or hard of hearing but Keith is prominently featured in the mix,did you listen to Don't Ease with your fingers in your ears.

Subject: Weird Mix?
If Keith is on this tape i can barely make him out , if he isn't i am hearing imaginary piano players in my head, either way the end result is a tape that has the sort of bobby, jerry, phil, interplay as those sweet 69 shows with a 73 setlist. Cool Other One. Jerry Shredding some intense revolving lsd soaked drippy gooey goodness throughout, but what else would you expect from the greatest musician ever in the history of ever. I can hear fucking donna "Wheres the Keith?"

This has everthing and more, inspiring playing from start to finish and super song selection. First set is excellent and all the cowboy songs are played with an extra flair, check out Race is On. Set II a rocking start to a rocking finish with some jamming gems inbetween, love the Bobby McGee.

Not a huge '73 fan by any means...I usually cycle to the same shows of this year, which amount to the usual suspects of greatness: 11/11/73, 6/22/73, and 2/15/73..but this one really caught me by surprise.

It's an exceptionally smooth show...the playing is relaxed and fluid and the vocals are especially strong...Jerry in fine form on ROW JIMMY and HE'S GONE (an outstanding version w/soulfull end coda on 'nothin's gonna bring him back")...the end section jam of EYES is top notch, there's a terrific and powerful GDTRFB and a fine CASEY JONES as well.

First set, too is spot-on, and as has been mentioned, how can you pass up EL PASO actually played in El Paso? (the crowd can be heard acknowledging at the beginning)

This recording is also pristine. Great job all around and highly recommended!

Subject: Is There Some Confusion Here?
How come this 11/23/73 and the other copy of 11/23/73 here on the IA have completely different set lists? Did they play two shows there that day?

http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-11-23.sbd.orf.194.sbeok.shnf

What's the deal? Is one correct,or are both correct? Just curious....

UPDATE and CORRECTION
Thanks Steve for clearing up the confusion...I wondered why they would do 2 shows on the same date in El Paso at the same venue. Appreciate the work, and the great show here. I had never heard this show before. Another primo fall '73 show!
Oh yeah, you can't pass up Bobby's big moment of actually playing El Paso IN EL PASO!
